Over the last 11 years, the Westwood PMC Kids Ride alone has raised nearly $590,000 that directly benefits both Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. Our ride was able to raise this money due to your participation and fundraising towards our ride. We hope you will participate again in this year's 12th Westwood PMC Kids Ride. Together, let's meet our 2019 goal of raising $65,000.
